today. it is the same way in football. >> would it have made a difference? >> i thought paul ryan was a big risk as a vp. without he have been more su successful if he had gone for somebody else? >> that is sectiond guessing i don't know. instead of getting 27% of the latino vote, you may have gotten 25 or 40. the facts are we didn't make it. he have a good person, smart guy. who would you like to see in 16 of all of the current candidates? >> i'll tell you, who is the kinder person? jeb bush? >> can i bush do it again? i don't know. >> maybe against a clinton. >> what i want more than anything is to bring this thing together. i want you to ask people about the regulatory wall. if we don't get natural gas and oil out there. we have a chance to make this the american century. if we have are the low cost energy producer in the world. america can have it. i've said before, this is the internet of this century now. it is a huge opportunity. we are in the first inning. >> well, great to talk to you. thank you for coming in. you volunteered yourself good to see you again. when we come b
, ready for paul ryan. >> you're looking very popular. good to see you, actually. never mind paul ryan. i'm hearing lots of different reports tonight, all the republicans telling me mitt romney's got it in the bag, all the obama people telling me no, no, the president's going to walk it. what is the reality? you're in the area of america that could be utterly crucial. how are you seeing wisconsin, ohio, iowa, that kind of collection tomorrow night, how important will they each be and which one could be the turning point? >> well, all across the midwest it's incredibly important. i have been in each of those states. obviously most of the time here in wisconsin but i was just in ohio the other day with mitt romney. i have been in iowa about a week ago with the governor there. there's huge excitement but here in wisconsin, you know, we had a recall six months ago today, we won by a bigger margin than we did two years earlier and you see the momentum. you saw it again in august when paul ryan was added to the ticket. but you really saw it after that first debate in denver when people here in
. nobody picked paul ryan. nobody knew the momentum was going to swing on the first debate. so all we can do is expect the unexpected. i think that stay tuned, it will be very anti-climatic for this to go as planned. >> ben smith, where do you think the real battleground will be? a lot of people are talking about ohio, pennsylvania, florida. the democrats still saying it could not go romney's way, all these things could be pivotal to how the election washes up. where will you be focused tomorrow night? >> look, mitt romney has -- obama has a lot of paths to victory. romney has very few. they will be states like virginia, florida. if obama wins those states, pretty much over. romney needs to run the table and do well in ohio and pennsylvania. those are must-wins for him. >> charles, when you look at both campaigns from start to finish, what do you think has run the better campaign? >> i think that this campaign has been what most campaigns are, a series of ups and downs for both sides, and so there have been some performance issues and the first debate was a performance issue for barack ob
in football. >> would it have made a difference? i always thought paul ryan was a big risk as a vp. it didn't cover any other base, any other demographic. would he have been bolder and braver, had he gone for marco rubio or condoleezza rice? somebody a bit different from paul ryan, he looked like a younger version of mitt romney? >> you know, that's second guessing and i don't know. >> the vice president won his home state. >> he's been a district guy, if you will. >> in hindsight, marco rubio may have gotten -- instead of getting 27% of the latino vote, you may have gotten 35 or 40. you still may not have made it. the facts are, we didn't make it. and we had as good a candidate as we're going to -- surely the best candidate in the field. we have a good guy, a good person. a smart guy -- >> who would you like to see in '16 of all the current candidates? >> i'll tell you -- in about 48 hours. >> who's the kind of person? >> marco rubio is an appealing guy. i think he's a centrist. he can deal with changing demographics. >> jeb bush? >> can a bush do it again? i don't know if the country's re
are the tough kind of losses to have, the ones that catch you by surprise. >> paul ryan on why he and mitt romney lost to president obama last tuesday. big defeat for the gop. how can the party get back on track? with me is virginia governor bob mcdonnell, chairman of the governors association. governor, welcome to you. >> thanks for having me on. >> paul ryan looked shell-shocked, all the polling looked good and wow, all these people came out for president obama. was it really that big a surprise? every poll i was looking at in the last few weeks had obama head ahead by two or three points. >> piers, we were very optimistic heading into that -- heading into that final week or two. i thought mitt romney after that first debate had really convinced the american people that he was the right leader, they had the right ideas to build up the middle class, to get us out of debt and back to work, and i thought the prevailing wisdom was if we were closer, within a point going into election day which many of the polls had, particularly in virginia, that the momentum on our side and the enthusiasm w
was paul ryan the wrong pick as his v.p. choice? in the sense that you just had another middle class white guy and it maybe just sent the wrong image to american voters about what the party now represented. >> well, you know, of course there's, as we look to the future, we want to improve upon these results, the face of the country is changing. i think paul ryan is a remarkable leader. he was a terrific pick and did a great job but as the country continues to change, i think you're going to see the next generation of leaders on the republican side emerge. >> the key battle now for barack obama in his second term will be how does he get some kind of bipartisan momentum going, particularly on the economy and this is your wheelhouse right now. you've got some pretty firm ideas about how to prevent the fiscal cliff becoming a reality. tell me about that. >> well, we need to avoid the fiscal cliff. as the nonpartisan congressional budget office said, it will reduce gdp by almost 3% and keep in mind it's only 2% now so that means going negative, going back to recession. they predicted that unemp
up. i was with mitt romney and paul ryan two nights ago in ohio, tens of thousands of people turning out. mitt romney has now been in pennsylvania, firing up crowds there. nobody thought that pennsylvania would be in play but it is now. this is a group that is fired up. we are excited. wither in the right spot at the right time. smith right candidate. the president's been struggling to bump up above 50% and i think the country fundamentally know it is off track, wants to get back on track and i think they are ready to make that change to mitt romney and paul ryan. >> if you can't beat an incumbent president when unemployment is just nearly at 8% still and the debt's risen by $5 trillion, to $16 interest pretty much a disaster for the republican party, isn't it? >> that's yes think had the country's going to make a change. you are exactly right. we have this unbelievable debt. we are paying more than $600 million a day in interest on the debt. the president promised that if he took office, he was gonna cut the deficit in half. he didn't do that he doubled the size of it. have 23 milli
crawled across the finish line. and his new junior partner, paul ryan, has given reluctant conservatives some hope. >> i want to hear what he has to say on this topic. >> but presidential politics is more than just piecing together coalitions. it's also about telling a story of who you are, what you believe and why you can be trusted. >> he's very professional. he's got a bit of new england in him. when he's out doing a job, he's going to do it professionally, but he's not the caricature the media or democrats want to portray. he's a very warm, caring guy. >> good morning. >> romney is trying to let people in, like wading into scripture as he speaks after the aurora, colorado, shootings. >> romney painted his own unflattering portrait and the damage endured. >> his problem during this campaign, if you look at the polls, is that a significant majority of people do not believe he understands their problems. and when he talked about the 47%, that only seemed to compound that problem. >> i think the first, most important thing is to recognize that that's not an accurate perception, that he's
just did. you just called him a liar. >> they haven't shared the plan with the american people. paul ryan and the republicans in congress have passed twice now and last year -- excuse me, two years ago as well, a ten year plan for a budget that deals with the ten-year debt window, that deals with the deficits, that deals with entitlement reform. we have done that time and time again. it's the democrats, it's the democrats and this president that haven't passed a budget in over three and a half years. for us to be lectured as far as budgetary discipline, piers, by the democrats is absurdity. we're the only ones that passed a budget in this country for the past three and a half years. it's the democrats that violated the law and didn't do their job for the american people and it's the president that hasn't led this country and come up with a plan for the american people. jay carney might say hey, listen, we've got a plan and this is the plan. well then share the plan with the american people. then we can get somewhere in this country and we can actually tackle the spending and debt tha
